Jim Clark Museum

The Jim Clark Trust, working in partnership with Scottish Borders Council, has announced plans for a new expanded Jim Clark Museum to open by 2018 which will mark the 50th anniversary of Jim Clark’s death.. The project is supported by their Honorary President Sir Jackie Stewart and the Patrons Club.

The Trust expresses its gratitude to Lord March and Goodwood, Clive Chapman and Classic Team Lotus, and the owners of all of Jim Clark’s cars for participating.

Since its opening in 1969 the Memorial Room has welcomed over 300,000 visitors. It is managed and staffed by Scottish Borders Council. The modest historic museum is home to a unique collection of over 100 trophies and memorabilia and draws visitors from all over Scotland, the UK and the world.

The Jim Clark Memorial Room in the picturesque market town of Duns in the Scottish Borders is dedicated to the life and motor racing career of Jim Clark.

The modest historic museum is home to a unique collection of over 100 trophies and memorabilia and draws visitors from all over Scotland, the UK and the world. At the heart of the museum is the trophy collection featuring both Jim Clark’s historic Formula 1 World Championship cups from 1963 and 1965 and the Indianapolis 500 clock trophy from 1965. The displays chart his early career from 1956 and his remarkable success particularly with the Lotus marquee through to 1968 in all types of motor racing. The museum also features film footage, the drivers’ overalls in which he raced, pictures, photographs, flags, newspaper articles, books and magazines. A small shop makes available a range of gifts.
